Friday afternoon update on relocation of part of the Jungle camp in Calais

It snowed last night in Calais. For many refugees this is the first time they’ll have ever seen snow, but it was too cold to appreciate the magic. Relocations continue today and we are over the moon to have now moved everyone from the family field/Kurdish area and to see them settling into their new space. We’re still on target to complete all relocations this weekend.

Below are some photos from the last 24 hours in camp.

We would not be able to do our work without your support and kindness. Many of the refugees we help are fleeing the conflict zones of Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. Others are trying to escape political oppression in countries like Eritrea. All are human beings like us. As well as providing immediate physical assistance, we want to help refugees maintain their dignity.
